I’ll fly away

When Reign released these ballet slippers and leg warmers for Collabor88’s birthday round, I was thrilled. I’ve wanted good mesh pointe slippers for ages, and these are designed to work with an assortment of mesh bodies as an added bonus. I am wearing mine with Maitreya’s Lara body. Le Fil Casse’s adorable little dress for Kawaii Project seemed like the perfect compliment, and when I saw Infiniti’s Fantasy Gacha Carnival poses, inspiration was born. I went to Blithe (which has really become my favorite place to take pics lately), found the perfect spot and voila!

Whatever will be, will be

“…the future’s not ours to see. Que sera, sera.”

Always liked that song, and for some reason looking at these pics made it pop into my head. Though as I was shooting, I was listening to Closer To Fine, by the Indigo Girls, and a line from that amazing song stuck in my head and became the title of the first picture below: “The less I seek my source for some definitive, the closer I am to fine.”

Apparently, I’m feeling a need to just let it all go, and accept and move on without obsessing. Easier said than done, but sometimes a worthy endeavor in and of itself!

But if you’ve got a desire to have your SL fortune told, I’m happy to do it… and with this beautiful set Sway’s did for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, and the beautiful, futuristic, curve hugging ensemble ISON released at Uber (which totally feels like something Deanna Troi would wear in her off hours), I feel fully prepared to gaze into my crystal ball and see what it shows. The messy, sexy hair Tableau Vivant released for We ❤ Role-Play just adds to the mystique, don’t you think?

the less I seek my source for some definitive, the closer I am to fine

Then, just to add to my musically inspired post, when I looked at Cae’s recent Valentine’s release, I thought of the Kasey Musgraves’ song Follow Your Arrow, which is all about being yourself and having no fucks to give because you can never please everyone anyway. I’ve sort of always held on to that philosophy, at least to some extent. Even as child who was often the verbal punching bag of would-be bullies, I never cared much, and they knew it. Which sort of minimized the impact of their caustic words, particularly since – when provoked – I can have a viper’s tongue, and I’d give better than I got to defend myself (or others that needed it). Which again makes me think, in some ways, of an arrow… something that strikes when unleashed.

The beautiful skin I’m wearing is also at Uber, from Glam Affair. I went for one of the more fantasy inspired makeups, but there are plenty of more natural makeup options, so definitely check it out in person!

Follow your arrow

So… here I sit, with all these heavy philosophical thoughts swirling around in my mind, but hey, at least they have a great soundtrack!

The Witch’s Workshop

October has always been a great month for events in SL. Of course, we have all the regular events happening, but right now there are a few special ones, too. Wizarding Faire, The Nest’s Halloween Hunt and Candy Fair in particular. This post is going to be image heavy, so I am not going to chatter on and on. Hey, I heard that sigh of relief! 😛

All three of these events end soon. Candy Fair on October 18th, The Nest’s Halloween Hunt on October 19th, and Wizarding Faire on October 20th. Be sure you don’t miss out. I will note in this post which items are from which events! Some items featured in this post are from another event, the Fantasy Gacha Fair. That event ends on October 31st, so you do have a little more time on that one! Also, please note the sim for that event is an adult sim, so you will need to be age verified. If something’s not clear, just ask in comments.
